GARTER ST (back and forth):
K all rows. 1 ridge = K2 rows.

See diagrams A.1 to A.4. The diagrams show all rounds in pattern seen from RS.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec as follows before marker: Work until 2 sts before marker: K 2 tog.
Dec as follows after marker: Slip 1 st as if to K, K 1, psso.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 st by making 1 YO, on next round K YO twisted (i.e. work in back loop of st instead front) to avoid holes.
----------------------------------------------------------

TOP:
Worked in the round on circular needle.

Cast on 210-224-238-266-294-322 sts on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with Muskat. Work 2 ridges in GARTER ST in the round - see explanation above. Then work PATTERN A.1 (= 14 sts on 1st round) from mid back (= beg of round) = 180-192-204-228-252-276 sts. REMEMBER THE KNITTING GAUGE When entire A.1 has been worked vertically, insert a marker in each side as follows: Work the first 45-48-51-57-63-69 sts, insert a marker, work the next 90-96-102-114-126-138 sts, insert a marker and work the remaining 45-48-51-57-63-69 sts on round.
Then continue in stockinette st. When piece measures 7 cm / 2¾'', dec 1 st on each side of each marker - READ DECREASE TIP. Repeat dec every 2-2½-4-2½-2-2½ cm / 3/4"-7/8"-1½"-7/8"-3/4"-7/8" 6-5-3-5-5-5 more times = 152-168-188-204-228-252 sts. When piece measures 24 cm / 9½'', inc 1 st on each side of the 2 markers - READ INCREASE TIP! Repeat inc every 1-1-1½-2-2-2 cm / 3/8"-3/8"-½"-3/4"-3/4"-3/4" 7-6-5-4-6-6 more times = 184-196-212-224-256-280 sts. When piece measures 35-37-38-40-41-43 cm / 13 3/4"-14½"-15"-15 3/4"-16"-17", bind off sts for armhole as follows on next round: Work the first 42-45-49-51-59-65 sts, bind off the next 8-8-8-10-10-10 sts for armhole, work the next 84-90-98-102-118-130 sts, bind off the next 8-8-8-10-10-10 sts for armhole, work the remaining 42-45-49-51-59-65 sts = 168-180-196-204-236-260 sts. Put piece aside and knit the sleeve edges.

SLEEVE EDGE:
Worked back and forth on circular needle.
Cast on 62-64-65-71-72-76 sts on circular needle size 4 mm / US 6 with Muskat. K 3 rows back and forth (1st row = WS). Work next row as follows: bind off the first 4-4-4-5-5-5 sts, K the next 54-56-57-61-64-66 sts while AT THE SAME TIME inc 6-6-5-5-4-4 sts evenly (inc by working 2 sts in 1 st), bind off the last 4-4-4-5-5-5 sts, cut the yarn = 60-62-62-66-66-70 sts. Put piece aside and Make another sleeve edge.

YOKE:
Slip sleeve edges on to same circular needle as body where armholes were bound off = 288-304-320-336-368-400 sts. Then work and dec according to A.2 (= 18-19-20-21-23-25 repetitions). NOTE: See arrow in diagram A.2 and A.3 for correct size. When A.2 has been worked vertically, continue with A.3. When A.3 has been worked vertically, continue with A.4. There are now 108-114-120-126-138-150 sts on round. Work 1 ridge while AT THE SAME TIME dec 6-4-2-0-4-8 sts evenly = 102-110-118-126-134-142 sts. Work 1 more ridge and loosely bind off.
